Andrew Salisbury

Born: 24th March 1980

Andrew, otherwise known as Lumpy, spends most of his time working with internet technologies, practicing Wushu, and hand painting finely crafted miniatures.

Part time study at Auckland Uni has led him into the IT industry where he now develops websites, and creates/integrates statistical analysis features into products where there was none.

For a day job he works with Datacom, but at night he becomes a maskless warrior against boredom trying not to hurt himself with a new jumping kick, or completing the latest request for a miniature.
